Biography

The R&B-inflected surf combo the Deltas formed at Fresno State College in 1961. Eventually billed as Jim Waller & the Deltas, the band featured a lineup of Waller on piano and organ, Terry Christofsen on guitar, Ray Carlson on saxophone, Terry Christenson on drums, and Eddie Atkinson on bass. The Deltas released an LP of instrumentals called Surfin' Wild on Arvee Records in 1963 (Sundazed reissued Surfin' Wild on CD in 1995). A 45 single, "Bells Are Ringing"/"Super Hawk," appeared later in 1963 from Warner Brothers while the Four Seasons-like vocal side "Give My Love a Chance" was issued in 1964 by Cambridge Records. The band disbanded in 1967. ~ Steve Leggett
